a 2024 and that's here today. is up next the back half of. tensions between iran and the west our brains and another notch iran detains a british oil town for 2 weeks out in the u.k. seized one of its ships well tehran and london find compromise is a situation going to spiral out of control this is in size.
9:22 am
and welcome to the program and fully back when the u.k. sees an iranian oil tanker 2 weeks ago tehran warned of retaliation when it appears iran has carried out that threat iranian revolutionary guards detained a british vessel in the strait of hormuz on friday it was sailing towards a saudi port when it suddenly changed course a powerful council that works closely with iran's supreme leader says a seizure is in response to the you came pounding any raney and tanka tehran earlier said the step in and para was involved in an accident with any rainy and fishing boat. before we were informed that a british flag to oil tank it collided with a fishing boat which tried to contact the tanker and find out how the accident happened but unfortunately the british tanker didn't respond and changed his direction changing direction in that fashion is against international regulations it could lead to new accidents therefore we requested help from military forces it

should issue authorities in the region to tackle was directed to ponder about sports and history custody of the order of judicial authorities while britain has summoned iran's envoy to the u.k. and its foreign secretary says he's worried iran may be going down a dangerous path need baka has more from london. britain has said that there will be a considered and rebuffed response to the seizure of a british tanker in the strait of hormuz if according to jeremy hunt britain's foreign secretary the tank isn't released soon there will be serious consequences the foreign secretary tweeted on saturday morning calling the seizure of the tanker illegal in sharp contrast to what he said was the legal detention over the rainy and vessel the beginning of july off the coast of gibraltar that vessel is accused of carrying oil to syria in breach of e.u. sanctions and on friday the authorities in gibraltar determined that vessel should
9:24 am
be detained for a further 30 days this is very much being seen in the u.k. as a tit for tat seizure but as we know that the greeks one vessel off gibraltar is going through some sort of legal process it's not as simple as simply allowing the grace want to go free and hoping that the iranians will will follow suit as well when it comes to the strait of hormuz well it is hugely important strategically politically and economically 18 and a half 1000000 barrels of oil a day flow through the strait in comparison to 5000000 that goes through the suez canal it's hugely important for crude oil producing countries in the region when it comes to allowing their goods to go to global markets as well this will undoubtedly and will have a political and economic impact not only in the region but globally as well this is the parker for inside story. well there's been
9:25 am
a series of incidents around the strait of hormuz since president trample the us out of the 2050 nuclear deal and impose new sanctions on iran in may the united arab emirates said 4 of its oil tankers were targeted off its coals and saudi arabia reported 2 of its ships were attacked last month 2 vessels know each in n. japanese owned were hits by blasts that cause major fires in the gulf of oman in june iran said it shot down a u.s. drone which violated this as space this month july 4th british royal marines seize any rainy and tanker brotha suspected of carrying oil bound for syria 2 weeks later president donald trump said the u.s. military had taken down an iranian drone that came too close to one of its naval vessels in the strait of hormuz but iran denied the drone was shot down. to a stabbing in our guests for today's inside story joining us from london andrea's creagh assistant professor in the defense studies
9:26 am
department at king's college london in tehran we've got. a political commentator and lecturer at the university of applied sciences and in washington d.c. joel rubin president of the washington strategy group a national security consulting firm welcome to you all gentlemen thank you so much for being on inside story mostafa what legitimate basis does iran have for seizing this british ship what rules have been broken for the revolutionary guards to seize this british tanker. hello as a mother effect there are a number of reasons that could justify this seizure 1st and foremost as you heard during the package your reporter said there's been a collision and unfortunately the tanker has defied calls by that fishing boat it never return the calls and it's stuff this tracking system in then the rain in boat
9:27 am
filed a complaint at this state poort shipping and maritime organization who asked the judiciary to issue a courtroom wing for the seizure of the tanker and the i i just the only comply with the court's ruling so that's according to maritime rules and regulations international maritime rules and regulations in to protect safety of navigation and shipping in the strait of hormuz which is very much crowded you know these days especially we need to protect the everything and the strait of for most flight but let me ask you a voyage and unnecessary isolation scene for this british to admonish tank not retaliation for the grace one iranian tanker that was season gibraltar 2 weeks ago . i was explaining the same fact that as a matter of fact you know a several 100 or all tens of boats and tankers. go through the
9:28 am
strait of hormuz on a daily basis and some of them you know violate the procedures that are in place and have been in place for the last several decades but iran normally warns them and let them continue their voyage and sailing but when iran has been approached by the u.k. through a hostile action and its ship has been supertankers been seized then there wouldn't be any reason left for iran to show kindness and therefore it goes for a serious practice of a strict rules that they need to practice actually in order to protect the lives of the people and the environment on the other hand according to international law when a hostile actions are taken by a nation that would harm a 2nd nation that 2nd nation is entitle to take reciprocal action according to international law as long as of the 1st nation continues to inflict harm on
9:29 am
this harmed nation the nation let me bring in andrea what they want us done is totally justifiable you say what iran has done is justifiable andrea's creagh in london the rising tensions certainly couldn't come at a worse time for the u.k. jeremy hunt the foreign secretary is in the midst of a leadership election campaign to replace theresa may as prime minister he's warned of serious consequences what do you expect those consequences will be and what can britain realistically do here yes thank you i mean he said the response would be robust would iran not go further and actually release the tank immediately the question here is what can the u.k. do at the moment i think the u.k. is obviously both down in a lot of domestic internal political quite well. fires where it's very difficult to get out of that we need to look at the levers of power that the u.k. has at its disposal at the moment in the gulf and so the royal navy navy has a presence in bahrain they are sending another for
9:30 am
a good and warship into the region but from a naval point of view looking at the platforms at 3 platforms at the royal navy's not iran if you will have it's very very difficult to actually really you know make use make use of their power and and especially against another symmetric threat that comes from iran and then looking at diplomatic leaves of power we shouldn't you know we need to understand that here from the western point to be more generally usually in this kind of situation you're using gauge me but you try to use you need to have a concept of component to actually put pressure on the iranians and that kind of course of measures these have been already kind of exploited to its maximum. because of you know this maximum pressure complain and we have very very few means available now to bring more pressure on iran because the sanctions already have meg been maxed out let me just ask you before i bring in joel in washington andrea as why did the brits sees the u.n. in tanker in gibraltar 2 weeks ago at the iranian billie's at the u.k.
9:31 am
following u.s. orders here what is the u.k.'s role in this dispute i mean look the maximum pressure can pay and obviously is an american thing but it obviously brings all the parties to the j sapir way to the table and obviously britain is part of that a britain isn't a very ambiguous situation because on the one hand they do want to leave any back door open for negotiations and engagement with iran to make this success despite all the pressure but on the other hand they're also trying to suggest to to washington that they will take action whenever you iran is in breach of international law and and sanctions and that particular the was the case with that oil tanker that went against you law and sanctions to deliver all to the syrian regime so it was taking illegitimate unlawful actions in that respect and it's also about signalling to the us that you. britain will not be soft on iran when it isn't breached in the same goes to the hezbollah decision a couple of months ago to a basically target as well as a terrorist organization which again is in line with the truck ministrations hard
9:32 am
line view on iran's activities across the region but all that being said they're trying to balance this with a diplomatic engagement trying to suggest to the iranians that we're still willing to talk but there are certain red lines that britain wants to enforce and that's what they did. in tehran doesn't agree with you i'll bring you in in just a 2nd mustafa but let me just say get joel rubin is a few fries joe how do you view this latest escalation in the region is it a foreseeable response to britain seizure of the iranian tanker in gibran to 2 weeks ago well this incident is not just and was not just foreseeable but the entire tit for tat explanation that we had earlier of drones being shot down both sides that was all highly predictable the american policy in this president trumps policy is i believe ultimately to try to break the regime it's a maximum pressure policy and it has not led to diplomatic engagement so we're in
9:33 am
a very dangerous spot right now we're in a tinder box of this back and forth about who's right to seize who's ship and who has legitimacy and who doesn't is completely the wrong conversation for what we should be having you think but here we are adhesion behind your conversation about actually diplomacy yeah do you think this incident gives admonition to hardline voices in the u.s. like john bolton who want regime change which. without a doubt this is this is intentional to create this pressure cooker to try to see if if the regime in iran of into iran will do acts like this that are dangerous and risky and provocative and they are that's that's intentional to try to find a predicate to launch military strikes we have to remember here in washington there's not a lot of support in fact there's very minimal support for military action just last week the house of representatives passed leg which on a bipartisan basis requiring specific authorization by the president to go to war
9:34 am
with iran so the temperature here towards war is very very cold but that means that there have to be other avenues and so the administration they see this is a win win for them iran behaving badly maximum pressure still on and hopefully from their perspective getting allies like britain who wanted to stay in the nuclear deal to change their attitude towards iran and get more bellicose all right let's take a closer look now at why the strait of hormuz is so important it's the only sea passage linking the gulf spigot on produces to the rest of the world 17000000000 barrels of oil flow through this waterway every day that's a 5th of the well supply it's only 33 kilometers wide and it's now it's at its narrowest point and 3 if the brakes are temporarily holding shipping in the strait of hormuz this is a vital international shipping route how can freedom of navigation be maintained now. very difficult as i said before the iranians are not working in
9:35 am
a conventional space the form of from a maritime point of view they're not using merit and conventional maritime power so by just putting and i think it's important 1st step that the united states already suggested i think britain will be on board as well is creating a multilateral maritime mission in the region to to basically create a deterrent regime against the r.g.c. as unconventional as symmetric methods and strategies in place but that on its own as i said is not going to be enough because you know if you use if you look at what how the iranians operate look using smaller skiffs smaller boats smaller vessels to harass a much bigger. tankers and then looking at the limited number of capacity that the us britain and also the g.c.c. states have in terms of naval capacity and we need more than just having warships in the regions to build that the terrorist regime up i think in order to enforce certain red lines we need to have people on board the ships and i think you know vessel protection teams might be
9:36 am
a way moving forward they could be contractors they could be armed personnel in uniform but that's the only way you can create a deterrence by denial regime because by just posturing and putting a few warships in place that's not going to stop the g.c. from doing what they have been doing over the last 2 months yeah i must have a question in tehran what is the overall iranian strategy here on the one hand you have foreign minister zarif was in new york talking diplomacy and on the other hand you have the revolutionary guards making all these moves in the strait of hormuz what is iran trying to achieve what is the message here. or 1st and foremost this is a wrong understanding of the situation this is not the i.r.g.c. and remember they just say that spin fishing boat from the private sector filing a complaint to the state through on shipping and maritime organization the judiciary the court has issued a ruling this is the state that standing behind this is stance and i'll explain it why but before that as you just mentioned mr zarif he just few minutes ago he
9:37 am
posted a tweet where he asked the british to stop their aid and helps in assistance to the united states economic terrorism against iran if they want to see their you know if they don't want to see any similar events in future because the point here is that iranians have shifted their strategies since a couple of months ago iranians waited for talks busy and they had talks for decades then they waited for the merits of the nuclear deal and they showed tolerance that they call strategic tolerance but they came to realize that they are just in compliance and the nuclear deal that was supposed to be a win win game now it has become a win lose game so they'll rush if that strategy to show that the time and the era of heat and run is gone right that it's not just in the military field but in
9:38 am
political economic and this is part of the real going on eof at a time when when iran was was it seems that gaining allies with the with the germans and the french who were trying to find a way to 2nd vent the u.s. sanctions do these moves really pay off. they have never ever done anything they've just been expressing political support for the nuclear deal but as another effective done nothing in support of economic moves to cause operate with tehran despite all their 11 promises of cooperation after the nuclear deal was abrogated by the united states and that's a violation of the nuclear deal by the way tehran rest assured that if it doesn't change this balance the situation with continue as such i mean similar to the status go and it would be forced on their pressures to comply with the nuclear deal it is sending a message to the europeans that if the nuclear deal is valuable they should do
9:39 am
something and make the cost pay the cost to keep it alive otherwise they may not pressure to iran and expect iran to do nothing and endure the pressures in exchange for not only the royal is sending this great message to the europeans ok joel rubin a your response to what a question has just said on the iranian strategy is iran being counter-intuitive here. well it's hard to see what alternatives the iranians believe they have but they do have alternatives and. attacking the europeans as the foreign minister just is not the right approach if you want to build alliances against the american policy they're actually pushing the europeans towards the american policy which i think is a wrong headed policy i see our policy right now is driving this conversation in this direction and there are no good military solutions the this idea that somehow ships and planes and drones are going to resolve the long simmering tensions that
9:40 am
we have with iran related to its nuclear program related to its regional activities that's just a fantasy we need hard headed diplomacy and we need to be engaging but for iran to undermine its european allies right now this is not going to help advance its cause right but the iranians are saying that for any talks with the u.s. to happen because the top administration of course has said that he wants to negotiate negotiate the nuclear deal with no preconditions but the iranians say that for for that to happen that the sanctions need to be lifted some sanctions needs to be lifted do you see the administration giving up giving away or you know some of these sanctions at some point. well i think that trump a minister should she go back right now into the nuclear deal and and get to a next wave of nuclear negotiation so could there be improvement yes will there be will it help ministration do it there are no signals that they want to there have been some tiny signals though and that's for example senator rand paul
9:41 am
a republican ally of the president did speak with the foreign minister and who knows where they've come out on this but we need to find paths to get into a discussion this president has said he wants to talk i don't believe it's fully genuine that said maybe the iranians should try it but we're in a space right now where the united states the same is that we have acted in violation of the nuclear deal they are causing this situation but this situation as we're watching it is leading us into a direct military conflict that really is not going to have any winners and craig in london where does this leave the europeans especially france and germany who have been trying to keep the j.c. peel lay alive they've expressed solidarity with the u.k. in the states a sense against what happens now as far as the european 2nd set good question is i mean we all agree i think that maximum pressure let to maximum resistance and that's not going to go anywhere and the problem is that we've exploited all other

means of diplomatic engagement and i think the europeans realize that and the reason the iranians are behaving the way that they are behaving is because they feel like they're with the back against the wall they have nothing to lose anymore because you know they're living on the maximum sanctions it is hurting them it's for them they consider it an act of war and terrorism as they've set publicly so what can the europeans do in order to selvage that deal is basically allowing the benefits that were promised to the iranians to actually trickle down and and get to the people of iran that hasn't happened so far the in this. index. indeed x. that they were trying to set. this kind of mechanism to allow for funds to come in bypassing the sanctions regime by the americans by passing dollar sanctions hasn't really worked so far it is a concept nobody knows how it whether and to what extent it is actionable considering that companies in europe will have to faced with the question if they do business with iran they cannot do business in dollar markets particular knighted

states and they know that there is very little in terms of incentive in doing business in iran because businesses there will be relatively limited and at the same time they might lose out on a lot more lucrative contracts in the united states so that in itself hasn't worked out this meccan i don't see whether they're this mechanism can actually get of the ground and by just talking and not delivering they haven't given the iranians a lifeline and i think to run for the most but as given up the hope that there is something coming out of europe from the eve 3 that might be actionable all right must have a question. andrea says that tehran has given up hope so how far they willing to take on this will iran go as far as closing up the strait of hormuz well 1st and foremost what would a what what were of people in london thinking when they seized the iranian supertanker at the request of the united states what did the expect iran to do did they expect that iran would sit i believe and do nothing would of course iranians

tolerate it that for our few days and there was a good hope that the u.k. could reverse the whole situation and course of actions on thursday through courts ruling by the gibraltar court released the uranium tanker and that would be escalate the situation now the u.k. seems to be very much worried about post brics it economic problems that it would have saw it needs the united states march right and they are dealing with this it with the u.s. that's run by the president. and so they are i mean president trump and they are treating the right now german hunt is approaching to iran with an arrogant language posing very serious threats to tehran that they would show a robust response that is not going to work it would backfire and he would you know i create this situation let me give joe robotically washington let me let me give

you the final sentence yes and go on final sentence of the last sentence is what's wrong with the language of respect if the u.k. shows good intention releases the iranian supertanker and shows that it's willing for diplomacy i believe then iranians would try to have a positive look at the situation of this istana carol tanker ok joe rubin in washington you have the last word careful calculations right now by the british authorities at the same time the u.s. defense department has confirmed that it's deploying u.s. forces in saudi arabia to provide an additional deterrent they say to to the threat in the region you know does this deployment not fuel risking not fuel the risk of a full scale conflict. well it's all heading in the wrong direction and the signals of sending military forces to the region is completely counter to the idea that we're going to increase diplomacy these aren't forces that are going to lead to
9:46 am
a ground invasion it's a small number less than a 1000 the danger here is that something big is going to happen it was something big happens that mobilizes the forces in a bigger way and then we have a real major conflict and they're running as they have other cards to play they have the nuclear program it's restart even more aggressively in the u.s. we have other cards to play the president believes that he can use our military in ways that he has publicly stated would be overwhelming and so this is a danger moment and this is where the europeans should be stepping in more aggressively diplomatically rather than creating more tensions and more dynamics on the shipping lanes i will leave it there gentlemen thank you very much for a very interesting discussion. andrea's creek and jill valving thank you very much and thank you as well for watching you can always watch this program again any time by the sitting our web site at al-jazeera dot com for further discussion go to our facebook page that's facebook dot com for inside story you can of course also join
